I met a new neighbor that is a welder, so I let him burn in the shock hoop and panhard mount gussets
the guy throws a pretty decent weld

I also did a little reworking of the panhard bar, when using some pvc as a tierod (mines still not made) I could see there may be some rubbing issues at full bump,

I also wanted hiems on both ends of the panhard so with minimal grinding I was able to get the rod end to move freely any direction on the back side of the mount

it puts the panhard directly over top the axle, and gives me alot more room
so I ordered new cromo rod ends for both sides, that will also give me more ajustability

Looks good man.

If you dont mind me asking where did you get the RCV axles for and how much did you pay for them. Got the cash saved up for a set and looking for the best deal.
